Its better than the pads.
Playing Atari on a pad feels wrong

Ive just tested my megadrive (scart) and dreamcast and both work wonderfully on my 4k tv. So when ive finiahed this training course in 11 weeks ill sit down with them properly and give some games a blast through.

Just bought a brand new ps2 as well as my old one was knackered. At 60hz some small text is a tiny bit blurred but the games themselves look fine. Only issue is my old 3rd party controllers dont have a working start button which renders some games unplayable. Like resi outbreak, cant get off the title screen as no button other then start will do it lmao! I have an official controller on order which will hopefully work fine.

Not quite games, but Poundland has a sealed 3 pack of UMD films for a pound. Hitman, Resident Hill and Silent Hill.

Meh, 33p a film and a penny for the slipcase... XD

Haha yes, he did say there was very much a theme to the games he bought!
He also told me one of his friends had come over and taken a few games out of the pile before he brought them in, and i do wonder what he took now :lol:

:mrgreen: with envy! Very nice lot of PS2 games there :) the NIS SRPG's in particular are fantastic to play through.

I picked up a couple more physical games for my 360. I'm a little wary of this because of the region locking problems I might face later but I know I'll actually play all of these titles and the prices are too cheap to ignore (averaging about $3.00 a game)

COD MW 3
Earth Defense Force 2025
N3 Ninety Nine Nights
Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad
Stranglehold
X-Com: Enemy Within
X-Men Destiny

Magna Carta PS1 from CEX my jaw just hit the floor when I saw how cheap it was.. Never knew it existed until I saw Nokgod's copies which I believe was one of the last RPG's he sourced.. They also had the Disgaea games, Phantom Brave and other rare PS2 RPG's mostly around the £15 - £20 mark most RPG's I saw in the wild..

Also got 3DS Project X Zone from CEX due to Megamixers recommendation
